Today I am grateful for...

...the opportunity to play tourists... returning to Darling Harbour after some 15+ years... and experiencing brand new sights and sounds.

I am also grateful to be sharing this adventure with Mini Me...

I don't think I've ever spent this much time staring at jelly fish...

Isn't this starfish spectacular?

This grumpy looking creature reminded me of my giant plecos... not a memory I particularly wanted to revisit...

It was all going great until we reached this...

How can we call this humane?

Can you see a smile?  All I can see is confusion and entrapment...

I felt ill...

I am grateful for having found Nemo...

...and angel fish...

I am also grateful for sights that put a smile on my face...

And this...

And this... THIS definitely put a smile on my face!!

I am grateful for remaining dry during ferry trips across choppy waters...

And succeeding in our mission for FREE Ben & Jerry's ice-cream...

...devoured on Manly Beach...

...as you do... during a storm...

I am also grateful for storm clouds clearing...

...to reveal majestic sights...

I have dreamed so long of seeing a show in the Opera House...

But not this trip... tonight we saw Carmen on the Harbour!!

I am grateful for new friends... who entertained us with tales (and song!) during dinner before escorting us to the venue...

I am also grateful for arriving super early so that we could check out the whole venue...

...and enjoy the sunset...

...and take selfies...

I am also grateful for rain jackets...

How's this for a stage??

Complete with cranes!!

I am grateful for rain clouds passing just in time for the start of the performance...

I am also grateful for fantastic seats with perfect views...

Last but definitely not least, I am insanely grateful to be sharing this experience with special people who mean the world to me...

Life is good.
